Dcaver America lias grown in spite of tbe policy f our Republican lriends. It will do you good to attend tbe Bryan meeting at St. Lou;s September 11. Missouri U grtting ready to make a men. Is for the political mistake made two years ago. The people will not longer stand for such acrobatic stunts as our Republican friends have been doing. The interests of the people and of the country demand the retirement of the Republican party, and the trusts. Democracy should organize for the coming battle of the bal lots. Get out every Democratic vote next November. Tbe Standard Oil trust are now buying distilleries. Per haps tbe oil trust is now going to corner denatured alcohol. j Our Republican friends have shown their friendship for the ; criminal rich by not enforcing j tbe criminal clause of the Sber man anti-trust law. ! There is no good reason why any person in or near Monroe 'City should patronize a big for .eign institution in preference to tome institutions. j Tbe Center Herald wisely sug gests tbat every Ralls county township send accredited dele gates to tbe Bryan meeting at St Louis Sept. 11. I While the so-called "infam industries" are still nursing the bottle tbey have grown so large and strong tbat they have en tirely too much power for the people and the country. The high tariff which was giv en America by our Republican friends serves the purpose of binding and holding the people while the favored few unjustly take money from the pockets i t the people. W. J. liryan stands for clean, honest government. With bim as president, .upported by a Democratic congress tbe gralt era will be of the past and a government of, for and by tbe piople will again be installed. The reports that John Rocke feller has contributed liberally to charity is a big mistake. It is true be advanced the money but the American people had to pay it back and alsj big inter- st on the amount contributed. The best interests of the American people demand the retirement of the Republican party which has shown itself to be the friend of the clashes which demand special favors and opposed to the interests of the masses. Our Republican friends can bo depended upon to stand pat on the high tariff quest ion, be cause a high tariff enables the lY.vored few to put their hand : n t o the pocket of the people ind unjustly take therefrom the Hard earned money of the people. Don't patronize a foreign in stitution when you can patron ize a home institution. It is not right. Every person has just as good a right to patron ize a foreign institution as you have. Suppose we should all exercise that right. Soon Mon roe City would not be on the na p. The farmer, the merchant, tbe prolessional man, the laborer, all have the same right to pat ronize foreign institutions when they could have patronized home. Si have their wies. There are too many of all class es patronizing big foreign in stitutions when they should be patronizing home. Are you one? if so quit. These big institu tious care nothing for you or for our community other than the amount of money they can take away, Tbey are of no advan tage to our community. Home people deserve and should have your undivided patronage. Mrs. Mary Gosney and fami ly have tired of Kansas City and are moving back thu week Their friends will e glad to have tbem wi:b them once again. Mrs. L. W.

The Opening of Schools Teachers and school ofli;ers 6huuld get everything in readi ness for school at least a week before school opens. Clean bouse, cut weeds, see that good water may be bad, burn trash, mane premises sanitarv and avoid malaria and other dis eases due to uncleanly sur roundings. The teacher should become -acquainted in tbe district before tbe opening day of school and have tbe classification of school well in hand. Get ready. Don't waste" first week of school get ting ready. See tbat black boards, library and other sup plies are ready for use. A good start means a good school. Parents should get every thing in readiness to start every child on the first day. Few children are bright enough to lose several weeks at opening and then Keep up with the work Much of tbe dislike of school is due to getting poor start. Asa rule those who start late can least afford to miss a day. Self iuterest should prompt parents to make some sacrifice to give the children the most favorable opportunities. For those who have not such interest the law comes to compel attendance. The compulsory attendance law should be strictly complied with. It tbe law is a necessary one every ood citizens should see that it is enforced. It it is unnecessary it should be repeal ed. Ail children between 8 and 14 years must attend some school lor half term. No one can be excused for a half term until he bas already attended. The compulsory law increased tbe enrollment and attendance last year. All districts bave had time now to prepare for it and it is expected tbat a better showing will be made this yar. The law compel school boards to publish a synopsis ot the "Attendance Law" in the news papers or to post notices. If boards do not promptly attend to it editors should call atten tion of board to the law. The State Superintendent of Public Schools distributed 75,000 such notices to the County Commis sioners and Superintendents last spring to be used now. A failure to publish or post notices does rot excuse any parent tor non-compliance with the law. There are several matters of minor importance that call for careful attention. If text books are changed at all doit at open ing of school. Good judgment will decide to make no changes now. Wait until after meeting of next Legislature. The State Superintendent's supply of School Laws and State Courses of Study is exhausted. Forty thousand copies of each have been distributed in last three years. It is well to leave a re vision of these until after next Legislature and lo.tne new State Superintendent to be elected in November. Respectfully, W. T.

Have your stationery printe 1 at tbe Democrat. Stop Think A trust is a bad thing. A monopoly tar worse. Chicago bas learned to its sorrow what a monopoly is. The world Knows all about the Standard Oil and says it. Few people outside of the large cities know tbat where the Bell people set their poles, their expenses soar sky high. We are told that telephones in the residences of the Windy City cost $60 per year and $120 in business houses. At those figures or any thing like them, how many could be used in Monroe.
